# Mathematics year 1–10 (MAT01‑05) Competence aims and assessment

Examples of connections

## Competence aims after year 2

• order numbers, sets and shapes based on their properties, compare them, and reflect on whether they can be ordered in more ways
• explore numbers, sets and counting through play, nature, visual art, music and children’s literature, represent the numbers in different ways and translate between the different representations
• experiment with counting, both up and down, choosing different starting points and various intervals, and describe patterns in the countings
• explore and describe general properties of even and odd numbers
• describe the positional system using different representations
• place numbers on the number line, and use the number line for calculations and solving problems
• explore addition and subtraction and use this to formulate and solve problems from play and one's own everyday life
• explore the commutative and associative properties of addition and use these in mental arithmetic
• recognise and describe the repeating units in patterns, and make one’s own patterns
• explore, draw and describe geometric shapes from one’s own local environment and argue for ways to sort them by properties
• measure and compare quantities relating to length and area, using non-standard and standardised units of measurement, describe how and discuss the results
• explain how to tell the time using a clock and calendar
• create and follow rules and step-by-step instructions during play and games
